CBC Therapeutic Horseback Riding Academy, is a family ran and operated program. The Academy instructors meet riders and horses at their current experience level and focus on the goals of each individual student to help ensure that they reach them. Enrolling in the Academy will enhance students' riding and horsemanship skills through group lessons, private lessons, and horsemanship classes. CBC instructors are trained and certified to service individuals with learning disabilities, or mental health issues who are looking to complete equine-assisted therapies.  

No experience is required to join the Academy.

Our students range from beginner to advanced and include children and adults.


Whether you just want to come and learn about horses and simply just enjoying being around them, or have the dream of competing, the Academy can support you in your human-horse journey.
